Who Knew Ellsbury Was A Secret Stock Broker?

Usually, Red Sox fans travel pretty well. Occasionally, however, a grammatically-challenged member of The Nation pops up. Case in point: last night in Houston, a fan of the Carmine Hose held up a sign aimed at former Boston centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury that was filled with spelling mistakes. The sentiment was correct—that Ellsbury is a "traitor"—unfortunately her Magic Marker put it down as "trader". Perhaps the fan knew of some stock market issue that Jacoby is involved with—after all, he was known to hang out with John Henry (who is an expert at commodities trading). Alas, we may never know.
